I will send you a booklet that Cristina and I use in workshops. It may be of some use to you in dealing with amanitas.

I’m not surprised about the color change upon drying. Some white-capped amanitas will not preserve pink tint in the gills on drying.

Very best,

This could be either Amanita hygroscopica [edit] (said to have pink gills) or Amanita gwyniana originally depicted by Dr. Coker with a bulb having the shape of your fungus’ bulb.

Is the material still available to you for drying? This is a real find that ought to be checked out in more detail.

Very best,

Rod Tulloss
